First Beverage advised Southern Tier Brewing Co. in their search for the right partner.
Role: First Beverage was chosen by the founders of Southern Tier Brewing Co., the nation’s 31st largest craft brewer, to be the company’s exclusive financial advisor as they sought the right partner to support the company’s continued growth.
Added Value: First Beverage helped Phin and Sara DeMink identify all of their financial and non-financial transactional objectives. Based on their desired outcome, we conducted a discreet, focused process to a very limited set of potential investment partners that aligned with Phin and Sara’s cultural, philosophical and financial objectives.
Results: First Beverage was able to partner our client with Ulysses Management, a family office investor based, like Southern Tier, in New York state and which has a history of long-term focus and passion for their portfolio companies.
